Rapids re-sign Sturgis

Commerce City, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - The Colorado Rapids agreed to terms on a new contract with midfielder Nathan Sturgis, who set careers highs in games played and goals in 2013.

Per league and team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 26-year-old Sturgis was a key piece for a Rapids side that reached the playoffs this season as he totaled four goals and one assist in 25 appearances, including 23 starts.

"We were pleased with Nathan's effort on both the defensive and attacking sides of the ball, and he made us a better team this season," said Rapids head coach Oscar Pareja. "He was solid defensively playing in front of our back four, and also made intelligent runs into the box. We're excited that he will return as we prepare our roster for next year."

Sturgis joined MLS in 2006 after being selected 12th overall in the MLS SuperDraft by the Los Angeles Galaxy.

He moved to Real Salt Lake via trade in 2007 before going on to play for Seattle, Toronto FC and Houston.

During his eight seasons in MLS, Sturgis has notched five goals and three assists in 105 regular-season matches.

"Nathan did well to earn his opportunity this season, and took full advantage of his time on the field," said Rapids technical director Paul Bravo. "He brings a great deal of experience for his age, and we're very happy that he has signed a new contract with our club."
